You might hesitate to add a few big ticket wedding registry items to your wish list, but you shouldn't! Believe it or not, some guests will want to really spoil you with an expensive present! Others will go in on a large item with a few others and purchase a group gift. So while you're adding those kitchen gadget, towels, and sheet sets to your wedding registry, don't forget to round up a few things with a little bit of a higher price tag! Here are some of my favorite ideas!
A High Quality Mattress
While a new mattress might seem like an expensive wedding registry item, it's the single home item that you and your new spouse will both use literally every day. If that isn't reason enough to put it on your wish list, I don't know what is. Add this every day must have to your wedding registry to ensure a lifetime of restful slumber. If you're looking for just the most amazing bed you've ever laid your head on, read my recent review of Tomorrow Sleep's bed in a box!

If you're anything like my husband and me, your diet basically consists of nothing but grilled food from April until October. Chicken, fish, burgers, veggies, it doesn't matter; we use our grill almost every day as long as the weather cooperates (and sometimes even if it doesn't). For the best in deck cooking, throw a Weber grill on your registry. They're well made and they offer a ton of great recipes on their website. The best part of grill cooking? You don't have to clean the kitchen when you're done eating.
An Espresso/Cappuccino Machine
For the caffeine obsessed, adding an espresso maker to your wedding registry seems like a no-brainer. But this one from Nespresso takes things to a whole new level. The espresso and cappuccino machine can brew a tazzo cup full of heaven AND it can froth milk so you can be your own at-home barista. Save money by skipping the coffee house and ask for one of these babies instead!
If your backyard is your favorite place to be, make it extra cozy with some swanky deck furniture. A sofa, a few chairs, and a “coffee table” will make sure your patio is ready for summer. Throw a wicker furniture set on your registry and your friends and family will consider it their unofficial invitation to all those barbecues you'll inevitably be hosting.
A Home Security Camera System
It doesn't matter if you live in the nicest neighborhood in the world, a home security camera system is always a good idea. Since I'm sure your parents will always be concerned with your safety (despite how old you are), adding this protective item to your wedding registry is a great idea. This one is rechargeable, wire free, has night vision, and works with Amazon Alexa. Any family member or friend who wants your first home together to be a safe one will definitely pick this up for you!
A Smart Thermostat
Speaking of your home, make sure it's always a cool 68 degrees no matter where you are. A Nest Learning Thermostat allows you to control the temperature of your house from anywhere with a WiFi connection. These smart thermostats are the wave of the future and a great gift idea for any new married millennial couple!
